Has any owner of a Ventura 210 put trim tabs on their boats? I am looking at a set of Lenco Tabs and was wondering if I need to put on the "Edge Mount" version with regard to how much space is needed on the back of the boat. I would like to use the 12" x 12" set. My boat is in the water, and I haven't measured the area where the tabs will go. Maybe I can walk into my local Whaler dealer and jot down the dimensions if they have a Ventura in the showroom.

RE: Tabs, Although my 21' Ventura does'nt have them, Whaler installs Bennett usually. These were/are available as an option and you should call whaler customer service and they will give you the exact model and perhaps the engineering drawing.

Trim tabs are a good idea. They will give you a smoother and more even ride. Check with your dealer. I had them installed before I launched my 210. You will be glad you did. Good luck.

My memory doesn't allways work at 100% anymore but as I recall some of the newer Whaler hulls required custom tabs.
Bennett is the way to go as they have made some of these custom tabs for Whaler.

Thanks! MarineMax has a sale of 15% off optional parts this month, and they sent me a $25 gift certificate for the holidays. This should provide some savings off the price and they will probably be the "factory recommended" tabs since they are offcial Whaler dealers.

When I bought my 210 Ventura in 02 it came with Bennetts installed by Whaler. They make a huge different in regards to ride, fuel comsumption, and leveling. Two%20of%20a%20Kind/1.jpg?t=1273251499 jpg?t=1310855398

There you go .....

Thanks for the pic's...

Where is your hydraulic power unit located for your trim tabs and is it easily accessible?

It's located inside my helm console that I can sit in so there is easy access. The pump has worked flawlessly for the last 11 years. I have a little over 4700 hours of underway time on the pump. Two%20of%20a%20Kind%20Electronics%20Box%20Redesign/8-4.jpg

Here's a better picture of just how much space I have under my helm console. You can see the trim tab hydraulic unit in the center left. Two%20of%20a%20Kind%20Electronic%20and%20Fishing%20Upgrades/6-1. jpg?t=1290193360
